If you like running and camaraderie, you’ve found your nirvana. Although the primary club base is in Winchester, Virginia, our club membership and activities cover the greater northern Shenandoah Valley Area. We hold races throughout the area, including the spring Apple Blossom 10k, Memorial Day’s Loudoun Street Mile, July 4th Liberty 5k, and the ever popular Winter Series, eight races held every other week between December and March in Warren, Frederick, and Clarke Counties. Among the perks of membership are discounts at many club races, a spring banquet, and a quarterly newsletter.

Runners (and even a few walkers) of all abilities are welcome with road running as the favorite activity. We also do have a small but demented fringe group of trail runners who participate in ultramarathons or just enjoy running the incredible trails we have in the Shenandoah National Park, George Washington Forest, or along the Appalachian Trail.

If this sounds good to you, join us by clicking on the Join SVR tab! You can also find us on Facebook. Facebook is where we post last minute race details and upcoming events.


SVR is a proud member of the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA). The RRCA is the oldest and largest organization in the U.S. dedicated to distance running with over 1000 member clubs and events representing over 200,000 running club members.
